Does this make things clearer?

Kushner Companies, Trump Organization in talks about hotel business deal
The family company of President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner has reportedly been in talks with the Trump Organization over a possible business deal around the construction of oceanfront property in New Jersey.

The New York Times reports that Kushner Companies and the Trump Organization have signed a letter of intent declaring the Trump Organization’s plan to manage a hotel at the center of the Kushner Companies’ $283 million expansion of of Pier Village in Long Branch, N.J.

Kushner, who sold some of his holdings in the Kushner Companies before joining his father-in-law’s administration, still maintains an ownership stake in the New Jersey development, which further blurs the lines between the White House, the Trump family and the two businesses.
By pure coincidence the government is thinking of building a ferry terminal adjacent to this property. Talk about luck!

It will be interesting to see who fuqs over whom in the Kushner v. Trump contract. My bet is on Trump.

Newsday
There’s never been anything like the war between Trump and NY

WASHINGTON — Many New York lawmakers took President Donald Trump’s recent threat to veto a must-pass omnibus spending bill if it includes $900 million for the Gateway program’s Hudson Tunnel and Portal Bridge as nothing less than a hostile act.

“When you hear him say, ‘We’re eliminating one of the biggest infrastructure projects that can principally benefit New York and New Jersey,’ what is that but ‘I declare war,’ ” said Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-St. Albans). “It is a complete slap in the face of New York.”

Meeks and other New York lawmakers — most of them Democrats — said this is just the latest clash in a highly unusual public political battle of words and deeds between the lifelong New Yorker and New York State since he won the presidency.

Much of the conflict is over the conservative and partisan Trump administration’s dismantling of Democratic initiatives, but it is also about New Yorkers’ fury over his threats to their treasured state and local tax deductions, Zadroga 9/11 health funds and Gateway. ...

And New York Democrats, and sometimes Republicans, have counterattacked: Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has blocked Trump’s agenda and nominees, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has criticized his moves, and Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman has filed more than 100 lawsuits against his administration.


¡Qué vergüenza!
